T t. i 

Adrian i^offman 



T^ROM boyhood, and during his long, active and useful life, 
the late Adrian H. Joline was especially interested in 
American and English history. The profound knowledge 
which he acquired, as the result of systematic and painstaking 
study in this and other fields, naturally suggested to him the 
collection of books and autographs. He entered with zest into 
the acquisition of important literary treasures; not so much 
for mere acquisition as for use and study. He collected with 
discrimination. His collection was made with a view to having 
his books and autographs typify important events and epochs 
and illustrate important incidents in the lives of distinguished 
men. He discarded the unimportant in order that he might, 
with important examples only, increase the historical and 
literary value of his collections, his daily and intimate com- 
panions. 

As his library and autograph collection grew and became of 
such importance, he wrote, at the suggestion of his friends, 
charmingly on the subjects he held in such great affection. 
His "Meditations of an Autograph Collector," the "Diver- 
sions of a Book Lover," and "Rambles in Autograph Land" 
are prized by collectors, not only for their literary value but 
as authoritative treatises on autographs and books. The 
"Edgehill Essays," the "Peapack Papers," and "At the 
Library Table" are among his other books. 

His writings are characterized by humor, philosophy, 
shrewd observations of men and events, deep insight into po- 
litical history and social life, strong human sympathy, and 
an intimate knowledge of the best literature. 

He treasured his books and his autographs, and the con- 

198483 



eluding words of his "Meditations" that follow showed his 
deep affection for them and his generous wish that others 
might also enjoy them: 

"No one will ever be as fond of my pets as I have 
been, and at no distant day they will be scattered among 
the bidders at the inevitable auction-sale which awaits 
all collections save only those consigned to perpetual 
burial in some library. My own association with them 
will be lost and forgotten. I look upon them almost as 
one might upon the children whom he must leave behind 
him. They, however, may remember, while our cherished 
autographs and books, in serene unconsciousness, will be 
forever unmindful of the fondness which has been lav- 
ished upon them. A rare book will now and then retain 
the record of a tender and devoted ownership, but an 
autograph seldom recalls the memory of a chance pos- 
sessor. None the less dear to me are these relics of the lead- 
ers of life and literature. Some one will preserve them and 
perhaps may fondle them as I have done. I trust that 
they may come under the protecting care of a true col- 
lector, a real antiquary no mere bargain-hunter, no 
'snapper-up of unconsidered trifles,' but one endowed 
with the capacity to appreciate whatsoever things are 
worthy of the affection of the lover of letters and of 
history. ' '

access to th original manuscript, but took the most astonish-

dustry and scholarly research, riot only explain the text but 
give descriptions of the important places that Burr visited and 
sketches of the prominent rulers, statesmen, and literary char- 
acters with whom he associated during his visit to Europe

Admiral Du Pont at this time was being urged by the Navy 
Department to capture Charleston with the aid of several new 
ironclads, which up to that time were untried arms of the ser- 

43 



vice against strongly fortified ports. Without the support of a 
land force Du Pont thought this to be a dangerous experiment, 
and this he explains in his letter as follows: "By day and night 
I am contemplating the possibility of relieving the heart of the 
Nation, in some degree at least. But the task before me is sim- 
ply Herculean. The day has gone by for a joint expedition. In 
May last, by seizing stores, I put the soldiers almost literally 
on top of Charleston, tuhen I enabled them to land on James 
Island but they failed, and now it is covered with forts. The 
forces can aid but little now, and the affair resolves itself into 
an experiment, between forts and iron dads." And further on, 
referring to the ironclads: " Out of the Jive sent, one has found- 
ered and the other has arrived totally disabled," etc.

French alliance in any form and under any circumstances, that 
he holds Buonaparte and his views and system in such detesta- 
tion, as to be willing to bear a great deal from England, rather 
than throw the least weight into the French scale; that he thinks 
a peace with England upon honourable tei ms, is easily attain- 
able." Regarding the Clintonian democrats, the party is to 
"Support them silently with our votes." He requests the re- 
ceiver to treat " the communication as strictly confidential, and 
take every precaution to prevent them from becoming public."

eral he writes: "For my part I thank the Gods, that I have 
attained to that desirable state of mind, in which I can contem- 
plate these party feuds without caring two straws which side 
gets the worst of it, my only wish being that they may give 
each other a sound drubbing. As to talking of patriotism and 
principle, I've seen enough both of general and state politics 
to convince me they are mere words of mouth 'Banners hung 
on the outer walls,' for the rabble to fight by; the Tcnowing 
leaders laugh at them in their sleeves for being gulled by such 
painted rags."

* The contents of some of these letters are interesting and 
important in their references to the progress of the Revolu- 
tionary war. In the one dated Aug. 6, 1777, he says: " The 
Fleet ivhich has been seen for some days past coasting along 
our eastern shore, last night entered our Bay; it consists of 100 
sail. We think it not only of immediate concern to this state to 
give you this information but also of ye greatest consequence 
to ye United States in general." Another gives the news of 
Europe and their probable affect on the interests of the col- 
onies: and gives his views on the issuing of paper money by 
Congress, by the absence of which they " run the risk of loos- 
ing the Army."

structing an important letter, with its many changes of 
words, phrases, and even whole paragraphs. Some peculiar 
marks and words occur on spaces unoccupied by the text 
which appear to have no connection with the letter itself, such 
as "Alice My Dear. My Dear. My D." Unsigned. Pub- 
lished in Harrison's "Life and Letters of Poe," pp. 175. 

' ' Before quitting the ' Messenger ' I saw, or fancied I saw, 
through a long and dim vista, the brilliant field for ambition 
which a Magazine of bold and noble aims presented to him who 

104 



should successfully establish it in America. I perceived that 
the country, from its very constitution, could not fail of afford- 
ing in a few years a larger proportionate amount of readers 
than any upon earth. I perceived that the whole energetic, busy 
spirit of the age tended wholly to Magazine literature to the 
curt, the terse; the well-timed, and the readily diffused, in 
preference to the old forms of the verbose and ponderous and 
the inaccessible," etc. 

"Holding steadily in view my ultimate purpose, to found a 
Magazine of my own, or in which at least I might have a pro- 
prietary right, it has been my constant endeavour in the mean- 
time, not so much to establish a reputation great in itself as 
one of that particular character which should best further my 
special objects, and draw attention to my exertions as Editor 
of a Magazine. Thus I have written no books, and have been 
so far essentially a Magazinist, bearing, not only willingly but 
cheerfully, sad poverty and the thousand consequent contumelies 
and other ills which the condition of the mere Magazinist entails 
upon him in America, where, more than in any other region 
upon the face of the globe, to be poor is to be despised," etc. 

"Setting aside, for the present, my criticisms, poems, and 
miscellanies (sufficiently numerous), my tales, a great number 
of which might be termed fantasy pieces, are in number sixty- 
six. They would make, perhaps, five of the ordinary novel 
volumes. I have them prepared in every respect for the press; 
but, alas, I have no money, nor that influence which would 
enable me to get a publisher although I seek no pecuniary 
remuneration ... 7 know that you have unbounded influence 
with the Harpers, and I know that if you would exert it in my 
behalf you could procure me the publication I desire," 

832. POE (EDGAR ALLAN). A. L. S., 1 page, 12mo, 
n. p. June 16, 1846. With 5 portraits, some proofs. All inlaid

904. SCOTT (WINFIELD, Major-General). A. L. S., 
4 pp. 4to, Augusta, Me., March 12, 1839. To James Monroe, 
N. Y., with address. 

* IMPORTANT HISTORICAL LETTER. The state of Maine and 
the Province of New Brunswick were fast approaching actual 
hostilities over the possession of Aroostook, the "Disputed Ter- 
ritory," when Gen. Scott was sent by the U. S. Government to 
procure ' ' Peace with Honor. ' ' The above letter, written soon 
after the signing of the "Memorandum" at Washington, 
plainly shows his feelings regarding war with Great Britain. 
After referring to his own private claim against the Govern- 
ment he dwells on his overture made to Sir John Harvey: "you 
may never see my letter to Sir John (semi-official) to whioh I 
shall soon have a reply (in 5 or 7 days) intimating a practical 
arrangement by which to stave off a conflict of arms, in the 
disputed territory $ gain time to enable the Government at 
Washington to settle the great question of boundary with the 
government at London. The Governor here and other leading 
men approved my overture, before it was sent off, <$ I do not 
doubt that Sir J. Harvey will give a reply which will open this 
door to a close approximation, after the passage, perhaps of a 
few additional notes . . . I can hardly doubt that we shall be 
able to gain the necessary time to enable the diplomats of the 
two countries to arrange the whole matter amicably $ satis- 
factorily . . . Use these obscure hints discretly. It is my 
wish <$ belief that we shall avoid collision," etc.

* Owing to the state of public opinion in New York, caused 
by the arrival on the same day of Gen. Washington and Gov. 
Tryon, the latter suffered much uneasiness and mortification, 
and in consequence retired to the British ship ' ' Dutchess of 
Gordon" under the protection of the guns of the "Asia," 
where he continued his intrigues with citizens. The above let- 
ter is one of his last official communications to the inhabitants 
of the Colony before actual hostilities with Great Britain; in it 
he refers to his resignation as governor and to the state of the 
Colony: "His Majesty has been graciously pleased, to grant 
me his Eoyal permission to withdraw from my Government . . . 
It has given me great pain to view the Colony committed to my 
care, in such a Turbulent State, as not to have afforded me 
since my arrival, any prospect of being able to take the Dis- 
passionate and Deliberate Scncc of its Inhabitants." 

Accompanying the above is the following A. N., in the hand- 
writing of Gov. Tryon : ' ' Govr. Tryon presents his best 
Complts. to Mr. Speaker, and sends him inclosed the Declaration 
of his Sentiments to the inhabitants of the Province. Ship

the hUls on the west of the camp, and on the mountains on the 
East side of the Hudson. When the order was given to fire, 
there was a stream of firing all around the camp rapidly pasting 
from one end of the line to the other, while the roar of cannon, 
reverberated from the hills, resounded among the mountains, 
and thousands of human voices made the atmosphere ring with 
a song prepared for the occasion."

* A Eevolutionary document of great historical importance, 
being no less than a contemporary list of all the American 
forces in Canada at the crisis of the first Northern campaign, 
compiled by Col. Varick, then captain of the 6th company of 
New York's first Continental Eegiment which formed a part 
of Gen. Montgomery's force. At the time this document was 
written Gen. Arnold had just completed his terrible expedition 
through Maine, and had fallen back from Quebec to Point aux 
Trembles to await the arrival of Gen. Montgomery's force, 
which was proceeding down the St. Lawrence after the capture 
of Montreal. The list is summarized in a note by Varick as 
follows: "Of the within number of 1632 men supposed to 
remain in Canada it is more than probable that 300 have passed 
this Post without calling of which I have no account, so that 
with Col. Arnold's Corps which may lie about 650, the whole 
force of our army in Canada is something less than 2000 men."

* A most important letter to Governor Clinton. At this time 
Arnold was in command of the American forces at West Point, 
to which post Washington had appointed him at his request, 
and he had established his headquarters at Beverly, formerly 
the residence of Beverly Eobinson, the Royalist. It seems cer- 
tain that Arnold was under English influence at this date 
only a month before his open treason but his letter naturally 
shows no evidence of such a condition of mind. 

After stating the number of very necessary repairs he would 
like to make to the military equipment of the post, he writes: 



"In this Situation Sir, I am under the necessity of looking up 
to your Excellency, for such Assistance, as it may be in your 
Power or that of this State, to furnish me with, for securing 
Posts, established at such amazing Expence, 8r which are of 
such vast Importance to the United States in general $ to this 
in particular . . . By the late Appointment of Col. Pickering 
to the Quarter Master Generalcy (who is not arrived in Camp) 
every thing is become so much deranged in that Department, 
as to deprive me of all Hopes of seasonable Assistance from 
him," etc.

he has not yet returned," etc.

proceedings in the autograph of Lieut. John Paul Jones as

flagship of the Continental Navy. Accompanied by a letter 
of guarantee as to the genuineness of the document. 3 por- 
traits and a view. Together 6 pieces. 

* The above document deals with an incident of extreme im- 
portance in connection with the life and career of John Paul 
Jones. 

On the night of April 6th, 1776, when the American fleet was 
off Reedy Island on their return from the successful expedition 
to New Providence, they suddenly discovered in their midst a 
hostile vessel (the Glasgow), which was immediately engaged 
by the Alfred. Owing to the disagreeable temper of her com- 
mander, John Hazard, the Providence delayed in standing by 
to assist in capturing the powerful enemy, although he had 
previously been warned to prepare for action. This resulted in 
the court martial reported in the above document, at which 
Lieut. Jones sat in judgment. Capt. Hazard was cashiered 
and Paul Jones, heretofore passed over by intriguing poli- 
ticians, was appointed in his place, because of abilities dis- 
played in the same engagement. 

The names appearing as members of the court martial in- 
clude: Dudley 3altonsta.il, Pres. Abraham Whipple, and 
Nicholas Middle, three of the first five commanders appointed 

31 



by Congress for the Continental Navy; and, in addition to John 
Paul Jones, Bhodes Arnold, and Hoysted Hacker, three of the 
first lieutenants appointed at the same time. In copying the 
document Paul Jones has had occasion to sign his name twice. 
First in the list of members and secondly in the signatures at 
the end.

that the Tory party liad given birth to the federalist party. 
Miss Wright knows too well the United States to have com- 
mitted such an error. The federalist party was composed of 
Hamilton, Adams, Jay, King, Knox, etc., that is to say of the 
Whigs distinguished in the army, in the public conventions, in 
the revolution as well a-s the persons of the other party," etc.

show the contrary the bill accompanying the letter is sent out. 
The bill empowers the King to enable his commissioners to

tion is that the bill which is sent over has not passed into a law

GENERAL PARSONS' ORDERLY BOOK DURING THE 
AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 

408. AMERICAN REVOLUTION. Orderly Book of 
General Samuel H. Parsons, largelj- in his autograph, 
written while he was in charge of the construction of the 
defences of West Point, from Feb. 16, 1778, to April 29, 
1778; 36 pages. With the remainder of the book filled with 
accounts, memoranda, copies of letters, etc , by Gen. Par- 
sons' son, Enoch Parsons, financier of Connecticut. Oblong 
12mo, original boards, sheep- back (worn). 

* Early in 1778 Gen. Parsons was appointed to command the 
troops stationed in the Highlands of the Hudson and to take 
charge of the construction of the fortifications at West Point. 
The orderly book shows that this work was commenced on 
March 9th and Captains Savage and Champion were appointed 
to direct the building of the works. On April 1 1th Gen. Par- 
sons named each of the redoubts by the name of the regiment 
which occupied it, as: Putnam's Redoubt, Webb's Battery, 
Meigs's Battery, Sherbourn's Redoubt. Many orders relate to 
the care to be taken against spies, and one offers a reward of 
$30 for every spy captured. It is interesting to note that Gen. 
Parsons was one of the board that tried Andre two years later, 
and that it was afterward charged that Gen. Parsons was a 
traitor and was furnishing information to the enemy about the 
time of Arnold's disgrace. The Orderly Book further shows 
that on March 7th a squad was ordered to King's Ferry as guard 
till stores could be removed, Mar. 9; Wm. McCorny was ap- 
pointed to oversee, collect and take care of all the boats and 
other craft in the River. Mar. 27; a ferry was established at 
West Point, Apr. 4; "A sentinel is to be placed on the Heights 
to observe to Anthony's Xose; if any fires or Smoke* arc made 
there immediate notice is to be given." Apr. 12. a guard is to 
observe and signal the movements of the enemy's ships. Be- 
sides the above there are orders for courts martial, orders to 
attend divine service, orders in case of attack by the enemy, 
etc., etc.

who pretends to be a Turk, took on board upwards of an hun- 
dred Tripolines, slipped his cables, and went out to attack her.

* A valuable historical and biographical series of letters from 
one of the great orators of America who held his own with 
Patrick Henry, Clay, Calhoun and others of that period. One 
letter refers to his descent from Pocahontas and John Bolfe. 
Another describes the flight of his mother, with a babe only a 
week old and John Randolph, then about five, when Gen. 
Arnold was raiding the country during the Revolution. "I see 
her the evening that she fled again (by night) from Tarleton 
as she flung my deceased father's most valuable papers into a 
pillow case and put his steel hilted dagger into her stays. I 
asked her what that was for, 'My son, your mother shall never 
be insulted,' was her reply." Many and vivid are his descrip- 
tions of Roanoke, of his dogs, his horses, his slaves, etc.; of the 
destruction of his library by fire and his financial losses; of 
his health ; of the insanity of his nephew ; of the abilities and 
characteristics of his adopted son. Randolph was always active 
in politics and had decided opinions of the policies and poli- 
ticians of the time. He remarks that Jackson, Clay and Cal- 
houn are ruining the country; that Gallatin and Monroe have 
caused all the suffering of the people. On Jan. 2, 1815, he 
writes: "All is confusion at O [throughout the letters he calls 
Washington 'O'; for the "Federal Old-Fields"]. Letters this 
morning express doubts whether the bank bill will, or will not pass. 
Dallas reviled by the Jacobins (the democratic ones I mean) 
wlio are at daggers drawn with each other. Newton ("valiant 
Feeble"'!) talking of "revolt". Gholson ("Wart", if you 
please, for he is a mere excrecence) complaining that if you, 
mention the Bank Bill to a brother Demo, you are in danger 
of being insulted ..." He comments on the Hartford Con- 
vention, his own elections and defeats, his hatred for the city 
of Washington, etc. He frequently expresses his abhorrence of 
Napoleon, and sharply criticises European affairs. Almost every 
letter mentions the title of some book he has been reading, his 
favorites being Madame de Stael and Shakespeare. During the 
war of 1812 he visited military camps, and the letters contain , 
descriptive notes on the privations and sufferings of the troops, 

M 



unsanitary conditions, etc. On Feb. 4, 1815, he writes: "News 
from Xete Orleans. Jackson repelled a desperate attack on his 
lines with the loss of only thirty men. British killed 700. 
Total loss 15-1600," etc. 

These letters are apparently unpublished, and many of the 
facts and incidents are evidently either unknown or unnoted by 
Randolph 's biographers such as his love affairs, his adopted 
son, Dr. Dudley, etc.

amusement like the late H. Buribury Esq Well, my 

blessing and heaven's be upon him and make him like his 
father, with something a better temper and a smoother head of 
hair, and then all the men and women must love him. Martin
